Woohoo! Those Facebook pictures got me to dust off my username and post for the first time in ages. Pretty excited to see how Mangini can contribute musically, especially since they've had the entire tour to jam and riff together.
Welcome back! (by the way, are you really italian or it's just the username?)
I am sure that the experience and th chemistry they have built jam anfter jam, soundcheck after soundcheck, will be a source of delightful thematic interaction between the drums and the other instruments. I wouldn't mind to see so e sections where the drums become central, as a vocal section with no James.
